I've been performing the classic human blockhead for quite some time now, and I would love to hear what you guys think about the following question...

Which is better from the audiences perspective,

A) to use an 18 penny nail that can easily go completely in the nose, with the head of the nail all the way to the base the nose.

or..

B) to use a much longer nail that looks more dramatic before insertion, but when completely in will stick out further.

Thanks for your help guys!

All the way in. It removes questions from the audience, without ever having to point it out.

I liked the way Derren Brown did it on his evening of wonders show, it was
almost in, but just enough sticking out as to be visible when the camera came
in close.

Justin, you should oreder some Nippulini nails. They're amazingly smooth and he can make them any size you want. He makes them from stianless steel, they never rust! An EMT friend of mine even autoclaved them for me.

Seconded!
I never autoclaved mine though...
Odd thing is, when I am in the busy season, blockheading many times per day, my nose stays perfectly healthy. If I stop for a week, massive sinus infections.
I am going to draw the conclusion that the regular insertion of a nipps amazing surgical steel blockhead nail into the nasal cavity fends off dreaded and debilitating sinusitis! Forget neti pots, this astounding nostrally administered cure all can save one days of misery and torment! Buy one today!!
Best thing I ever shoved into my nose!!
